    nVidia has released a new system utility that allows BIOS settings to be changed while inside Windows. You are supposedly able to adjust bus speeds to over or underclock the CPU, modify BIOS settings, and get diagnostic information though this utility. From nVidia's Site:

    NVIDIA® System Utility is the ultimate utility for accessing, monitoring, and adjusting your system components, including temperature and voltages with clear, user-friendly control panels. Overclock your system for highest performance or underclock it for near silent operation. All changes are performed within the Microsoft® Windows® interface – enabling full functionality without the need to make changes in the BIOS and reboot your system.

    My motherboard (The Asus A7N8X Deluxe) doesn't currently have full support for it yet, but I have access to basic bus overclocking features and system information. Hopefully someone with a supported motherboard can post a full review soon.

    Screenshots attached below.

    nVidia has also released the new 3.13 version of their nForce2/3 chipset Unified driver package. This package includes a new high performance IDE driver, and several audio improvements, including fixes for 3D Audio Reverb and BSOD/Stability issues with the sound system.

    sorry jj, I did a quick search for nvsystem and came up with nothing, was pretty tired.

    What we could do is get a few of us together and turn this into a full blown review?
